CUMRU TWP., Pa. - The threat of falling rocks has prompted PennDOT to close a stretch of Route 724 in Berks County for the next 10 days.
The stretch of Route 724 between Interstate 176 and Route 10 in Cumru Township was closed Monday so that crews can address an ongoing problem with rocks sliding off the adjacent hillside and onto the road.
"It's a little bit scary going through there," Joe Pichler told 69 News last week.
PennDOT will clean up rocks that have fallen onto the road and replace the fence that runs between the road and the hillside.
